It's the most fun you'll have at an opera this side of Elmer Fudd and Bugs Bunny. No wonder the audience - glimpsed in individual tightly framed shots - seem enraptured.

Ingmar Bergman's version of Mozart's The Magic Flute isn't his most cinematic work - it's a film version of an opera and was originally shown on Swedish TV. Nonetheless, there are elements here which echo his other films.

Using the opera's timeless whimsy and inventiveness, the movie replicates a performance on the stage that is so good that it almost makes you forget the participants' ABBA-like hairstyles.

If filmed opera seems a contradiction -- no more than an excuse to immortalize a performance -- this production is the exception to the rule.
